The word 'philosophy' as well as the conjuring expression 'Indian philosophy' has meant different things to different people-endeavours and activities, old and new, grave and frivolous, edifying and banal, esoteric and exoteric. In this book, the author has chosen deliberately a very dominant trend of the classical (Sanskrit) philosophical literature as his subject of study. The age of the material used here demands both philological scholarship and philosophical amplification. Classical pramanasastras usually deal with the theory of knowledge, the nature of inference and language, and the related questions of ontology and semantics. Several important concepts and theories have been singled out for critical analysis and clarification in modern terms so that the results may be intelligible to modern students of both Sanskrit and philosophy. It is hoped that such attempt will kindle the enthusiasm of young scholars in the field and inspire them to proceed in this comparatively new area of research and explore into further and more interesting possibilities.


Logic, Language and Reality contains much Sanskritic scholarship that will make it more immediately accessible to the IndologistÄMatilal reconstructs arguments and positions with special reference to modern analytical philosophyÄ Every chapter is abundant in suggestive remarks about the appositeness of Indian theories to modern problems ... indeed, part of the intellectual excitement of reading the books is in the many possibilities for future philosophical research that it opens up. - Roy W. Perrett, Book reviews-South Asia
